Olde Del Mar Neighborhood Guide

Olde Del Mar is the historic section of Del Mar. Many of the homes here feature spectacular views across the bluffs to the Pacific Ocean, making this one of the most desirable neighborhoods in California. First established in 1885 as a seaside resort, Del Mar has quite a history. It was popular with silent film stars back in the first decades of the twentieth century, and the famous actor and singer Bing Crosby founded the Del Mar racetrack, at which the Del Mar Horse Races are held in the summer and fall.

The Del Mar Fairgrounds hosts the San Diego County Fair from the middle of June on into early July. Fairgoers can enjoy the beautiful California sunshine, as well as carnival rides, arts and crafts exhibits, and an abundance of other attractions. Olde Del Mar offers upscale shopping at the Del Mar Plaza, while the Village of Del Mar has one-of-a-kind boutiques and restaurants.

The main street is Camino Del Mar, which becomes Jimmy Durante Blvd. to the north. Interstate 5 is just a couple of miles to the east, giving you convenient access to San Diego and the rest of the state.
